Question

What is the name of this U.S. President who created policies that benefited Georgia's economy during the Great Depression?

2 Answer

  • Franklin D Roosevelt
  • Franklin D Roosevelt. When the Great Depression stroke, Georgia barely noticed because it was still suffering from the damage of the Civil War.

    Roosevelt was really sympathetic of Georgia's situation because he had lived in rural Georgia, so when he became president in 1933 he wanted to do something that would benefit the state by providing rural electrification, modern agricultural practices, education access, improved public health and more job opportunities.

    The New Deal was created, then, as a response to the Great Depression, and  its policies really benefited Georgia.
